September 17, 2007: Fleas!

I got to sleep in just a little bit this morning because I have to go to court before I can drive in to the office. I was just getting out of bed as Dominica was about to head out the door when I thought that I felt something crawling on my arm. I shook it off and threw back the covers and, sure enough, there it was. A flea.

I ran out and told Dominica. She called into work and set off almost immediately for the store in Harrison to get the necessary supplies after having started a load of laundry. It is going to be a long day for her.

I worked my normal early morning before walking down to 31 Green Street to go to traffic court. I got there right on time at eight thirty but it took a full hour before court actually began. I was the third person up and it went fairly quickly. My ticket was dismissed and I just had to pay the $33 court fee and I was on my merry way.

I got back to Eleven 80 and Dominica was back from her shopping and had already done quite a bit of work around the apartment. The bed was all torn apart, several loads of laundry were done or underway, the house had been vacuum, Oreo had been flea treated, the carpets had been treated and more. It was a huge job. She doubts that she will make it to work at all today.

I took Dominica to breakfast at Food for Life which had just opened for the day. I figured that it would be more practical to be a little bit later getting to the office but to have already eaten so that I wouldn’t have to stop for the rest of the day. So we got a chance to eat together which was nice before I went to work and she really went to work. Oreo seems apprehensive but happy that Min is staying home with him today.

I didn’t get to leave work early today because I had to take that long “lunch” to deal with the court. But at least it is over and done with. I got home around six and discovered that Dominica had really done a ton of work today. The house was spotless, except for the kitchen. She had completely emptied our bedroom and even moved the bed to clean.

We ordered in dinner from Nino’s and watched an episode of Buck Rogers in the Twenty Fifth Century. I did some work on the second SunFire V100 and took the time to write out the process for doing the install so that I could get it documented.  It took until eleven thirty but I finally completed the base build on the second V100 and got the SSH process installed and configured so that the server can be accessed remotely.  It was a good and productive night.
